Professor of English Nancy Barry has created a radio show to help people tune up and repair their writing skills. The show titled “The Naked Page: ‘Car Talk’ for Writers” airs on KWLC Sunday nights from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.
“There is no stupid question to be asked on this show,” Barry says. “The goal is to have fun and laugh about how frustrating the process of writing is, but then discuss ideas about how to push through it and gain insight.”
